Shenae and Isaiah got engaged during a trip to Disney, As they say, everything certainly does happen for a reason. Shenae was previously married for four years but things unfortunately didn’t work out. She was newly single with two kids, but with time, started to get to know an old friend from High School. Although she was skeptical about pursuing a long distance relationship (Isaiah lived in Florida and she lived in Virginia), Isaiah made the big move over to where she lived to be closer to her and her kids, now that’s love. For her son’s fifth birthday, Shenae and the family went to Disney, which was where Isaiah proposed!

For the engagement party Andrew Roby Events  wanted to incorporate the Disney theme, since that’s where Isaiah popped the question. They ended up creating a seductive and sultry theme with an Arabian twist, similar to the classic Aladdin. The design gave the couple the elegance they wanted while also bringing back memories to their time at Disney World. To achieve this goal, palm trees from  Plants Alive were brought in to create an outdoor vibe, indoors.  BCG Events  created lush centerpieces that were exotic and captivating.To further push the imagination, props such as lanterns, elephants and standing candles were used from Sarah Khan Event Styling . Table top items from Panache by Lola gave geometric shapes that didn’t remind guests of traditional looking china and flatware. Blue Lace Cakes created a multi-layered cake that easily grabbed attention. With their creativity they made sure the cake helped light up the room by turning the cake into a lantern! It wasn’t just an engagement party, it was an interactive experience!
